Plan To Greet The New Year With A Healthy Smile
Posted December 13, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
What can you do to make sure your smile stays healthy through 2018? Everyday preventive dental care is certainly important, especially during the holidays. Of course, after we reach the new year, you will need to stay on top of your oral health needs if you want to keep your mouth free of issues like tooth decay and gum disease. Keeping up with routine care through the holidays is important, but you can make sure your smile is protected well into the year by making sure you have your routine dental appointments scheduled.
The tasty treats we associate with Christmas can increase a person’s cavity risk. Alcohol, a big part of many New Year’s Eve celebrations, can leave you dehydrated, and the drinks you choose can be higher in sugar – these are both risk factors for tooth decay. Make sure you commit to smart daily oral care through the end of the year, even if you are traveling.
Making sure you have preventive dental visits set will mean enjoying excellent care through the new year. At these appointments, you can enjoy the general dental services intended to help you steer clear of common oral health threats. This means you will be less likely to need restorative care. That said, an appointment that leads to a discovery of a problem can lead to care before that problem grows serious. Having a cavity that is caught and treated with a dental filling means avoiding a potential risk for a serious infection, and a root canal treatment.
At Wager-Evans Dental, we want to see our patients enjoy great oral care throughout the year. By scheduling routine dental appointments, you can ensure you have expert care, and timely intervention in the event that a problem does form.
